MegaTruckers – to launch Foxtel’s New A&E Channel
The new channel focuses largely on unscripted, real-life series and high-stakes programs that aim to thrill. As you can probably guess the channel’s programming below is aimed at the male demographic with similar programming to 7MATE though Foxtel told Reality Ravings that they have the first run at the series.
A&E kicks off with the premiere of Aussie doco special, MegaTruckers this Thursday, February 16 at 6.30pm on HD Channel 607 (and SD Channel 230). The new factual and entertainment channel promises to deliver hundreds of hours of original and exclusive programs from US cable giant A+E Networks. Its upcoming schedule includes Australian premiere seasons of Storage Wars, Storage Wars Texas, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Billy the Exterminator, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Swamp People, Axe Men and IRT: Deadliest Roads.
The one-hour premiere of MegaTruckers appears promising now that it’s being developed into a full-fledged series. The show follows blue collar man Jon Kelly and his entourage of ‘hard-as-nails’ drivers on an unforgiving trek across Australia’s sunburnt country. The team of haulers will transport some of the world’s largest and heaviest loads, and it won’t be easy.
